Inspiring tomorrow's health care providers, scientists

Alexandra Hubbell first became a DMU student as a teenager. Interested in pediatrics as a career, she participated in Health Careers Exploring Post 141, a program sponsored by the University and the Boy Scouts of America that allows boys and girls ages 14 to 20 to learn about medical and health care fields.

Now a first-year osteopathic student at DMU, Hubbell recently participated in the program as a volunteer.

“The students asked great questions,” she says. “The faculty make the program fun but not fluffy. Plus it exposes students to osteopathic medicine and DMU.”
